    Ok well here is my story, I rescued a dove (they say he about 8 months old] he's much better now ( I have had him for a week ) and I'd like to release him back in the area where I found him but I don't seem to see his kind flying in that area anymore.
    The day I saved him there were other doves trying to coach him off the road and I saw the same flock in the area for 3days after ( this is a route to daughters school, so I drive it daily ) now I know longer see them out there. The weather is changing here in Modesto California, so I'm worried.

    So do doves fly to different area for winter? Is it ok to release him even though I don't see other doves out there. I have a beautiful backyard with plenty of birds, can I release him here? Will they except him/her?

    It's been 7 days now, I know the longer I keep/ feed it will be harder for this bird to adapt back in the wild.

    Please someone out there, I need guidance.

    Thank and bless
